Tanker Assist to West Brandywine
By Lionville Fire Company
July 21, 2021

On Wednesday July 21, the Lionville Fire Company was dispatched for a tanker task force to assist on a working house fire with explosions and reported entrapment in West Brandywine township. Engine 47-5 made the response with a crew of 4 and arrived on scene with a large amount of active fire through out the structure. The crew of 4 assisted with suppression efforts and water supply along with multiple companies from surrounding municipalities, some traveling over 40 minutes.

The crew from Lionville operated on scene for about 5 hours before returning to the station to clean up and put Engine 47-5 back in service.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the home owner and family at this time.
